Don't Stop Me Now Paperback
Jeremy Clarkson puts the pedal to the floor in Don't Stop Me Now, a collection of his Sunday Times motoring journalism.
There's more to life than cars. Jeremy Clarkson knows this. There is, after all, a whole world out there just waiting to be discovered.
So, before he gets on to torque steer and active suspension, he takes time out to consider: the madness of Galapagos tortoises; the similarities between Jeremy Paxman and AC/DC's bass guitarist; the problems and perils of being English God's dumbest creation; then there are the cars: whether it's the poxiest little runabout or an exotic, firebreathing supercar, no one does cars like Clarkson.
Unmoved by mechanics' claims and unimpressed by press junkets, he approaches anything on four wheels without fear or favour.
What emerges from the ashes is rarely pretty. But always very, very funny. "Brilliant ...laugh-out-loud". (Daily Telegraph). "Outrageously funny ...will have you in stitches". (Time Out). Number-one bestseller and presenter of the hugely popular Top Gear, Jeremy Clarkson writes on cars, current affairs and anything else that annoys him in his sharp and funny collections. Born To Be Riled, Clarkson On Cars, Don't Stop Me Now, Driven To Distraction, Round the Bend, Motorworld, and I Know You Got Soul are also available as Penguin paperbacks; the Penguin App iClarkson: The Book of Cars can be downloaded on the App Store.

Review by HenriMoreaux
This might have been a good book back in 2003 if you really liked cars.<br/><br/>Reading it now it is less relevant as the information is all in regards to past model cars and unfortunately unlike the other books of his I have read this one does not vary topics. It's all cars, all the time.<br/><br/>Whilst he is still funny, reading back to back about cars which are no longer particularly relevant did nothing for me, I'm sure if you're a huge car nut you may appreciate this book however it simply wasn't to my tastes.<br/><br/>His other books? Good stuff. This one - not at all.
